MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Canada, May 28, 2013

Virtual Logistics Inc. announced today the launch of a new cloud based integration service for marketing automation. This new marketing automation integration service allows users of off the self shopping cart platforms such as Magento, Big Commerce, Shopify, Volusion, PrestaShop, 3dCart and Ecwid to nurture and target their B2C customers using the Infusionsoft or Hubspot platforms. VL will be exhibiting at IRCE 2013 in ChicagoJune 4-7, booth 1801 for those who want to meet with us to discuss this new service.

The cloud based service allows ecommerce retailers to seamlessly upload B2C customer and order information to either the Hubspot or Infusionsoft platforms for nurturing and automated marketing. The solution can be customized to the online merchant’s requirements and allows them to take advantage of the features of both platforms. By extension with the integration as a service solution, the customer also gets away from expensive custom program development often required to connect a web store to these marketing automation platforms.

Web Store Solution

Today many internet merchants are looking to take their businesses to the next level and are using a number of different web store platforms to do this. Some of these major web store solutions include: Magento, Big Commerce, Shopify, Volusion, PrestaShop, 3dCart and Ecwid. With so many different players in the space and diverse customer needs the demand for backend integration with 3rd parties is continuously increasing and that’s where the Virtual Logistics’ integration as a service solution fits. VL client listentoyourgut.com owner Ian Thompson puts the service into perspective.

“There came a time (in our business development) where integration became a necessity rather than just a nice to have and we searched for two years and never contracted it out to anyone because we just couldn’t find the right fit. That is when Virtual Logistics came along. I sensed right away that they knew and understood what we were looking to do because they were progressive in what they were offering,” said Ian Thompson Director of Listen to Your Gut.

Marketing Automation Solution

Infusionsoft offers small businesses sales and marketing solutions that help them save time and money while at the same time helping them attract customers and grow sales.

Integration as a Service in the Cloud

Current back office integrations include many 3PL and fulfillment houses as well as ERP, WMS packages and shipping systems.

“We at Virtual Logistics are really excited about this new service offering. We have worked personally with the Hubspot platform for the past three years and feel they have a solid product in the marketing automation marketplace. Working with the Hubspot and Infusionsoft platforms rounds out our ability to offer a complete solution to customers who want web store and marketing automation integration”, said Robin H. Smith , General Manager, Sales and Marketing at VL.
